This week we organise a short walk from Luteva along “la Soulondre” and after that we will go a bit uphill to the Belbézé area. At the other side of the road to Olmet (D148E1) we will descend to Lodève again. It is a circular and rather easy walk. Distance about 4 to 5 km. Maximum ascent (and descent) is 100 m. We expect to be back at Luteva around noon or a bit later.
Meet at Luteva at 10 minutes to 10 to start the walk at 10 o’clock.
The forecast is for continuing rain all this week, but if it should be dry we will walk around Lodève on the paths on the Grezac side of town.
As usual we shall meet outside the Luteva Cinema at 9:50, and depart at 10:00. We should be back at the cinema by 12:30 (if not before).
It is forecast to be wet and windy all day on Thursday, with possibly even a bit of snow.
So there will be no organised walk. Let’s hope it is better by next week!
This will be a round walk from St. Jean de la Blaquière to the Issart dolmen. It is fairly flat with a couple of steep slopes – no more than 300m – over quiet roads, vineyard tracks and footpaths. We shall meet as usual at Luteva at 9.50am for a 10.00 start. If going directly to St. Jean we aim to leave the square at 10.20.
The weather forecast for Thursday this week is sunny with nice temperatures. So we will go to Soumont to do the walk we cancelled a few weeks ago.
The walk starts in Soumont. As you enter the village there is some parking space on the left side of the street. The walk starts at that point.
We will walk in the direction of the “prieuré Grantmont’, but we will pass the buildings and go south/westwards. The walk continues uphill a bit, some places a bit steep, but not too difficult. We will also descend, but again, not a lot of steep parts.
The last part of the walk is a steady and a bit long climb for about two kilometers. But the climb is not very steep.
The walk is about 7 km. Because of the climbs and descends it will take a bit longer than usual, so bring some snacks and/or food with you. We expect to be back in Lodève between 13:30 and 14:00 hours.
We meet 5 minutes to 10 o’clock at Luteva to organise the “covoiturage”. We will leave at 10 o’clock.

I have received this email, rather delayed in copying to you all while I found out how to accomplish it, from the President of CSF but I feel it should be addressed to all those who took part or supported us with sponsorship.
I am writing on behalf of Cancer Support France-Languedoc to thank the Lodeve Walkers for the fantastic 770 euros raised in sponsorship for the Walk for Life in September. As you are probably aware, the event raised over 8000 euros, but equally importantly will raise awareness of CSF in the community through the 200 participants.
As president for CSFL, I can assure you that contributions such as yours are an essential element in helping to make our organisation run. They enable our volunteers to maintain the level of support that CSF can provide to those who find themselves in need of our services.
Thank you again on behalf of CSF-Languedoc
President Cancer Support France – Languedoc (Hérault, Aveyron)
We cancel the walk for today, the 13th of October, because of the rain. Have a nice day.
Marianne and Dorine
